Year-long Development Program – Reservations by December 31 for $150

SOAR with Network Fundraising already knows the tools necessary to achieve success when raising money. This is a “one box fits all” fundraising system because it’s set up to adapt within your community through 1:1 networking meetings.

We are accepting new clients into our 2018 year-long development program until December 31, 2017 with only $150 down. You determine the best month to begin your program after we’ve had a discussion.

$150 reserves your place and pays for the initial call. You’ll work with a professional fundraiser while you are in the program. This person basically joins your team for a complete year! The total cost for the program is discounted 37.5% but beginning January 1 the cost goes back up to $8000 for the year-long program. Buy now for $5000, which can be broken down into a payment plan throughout the next twelve months. 

There’s no risk because we guarantee a full refund of the total cost if you do not “at least” triple your investment during the year!

There has never been a better way to add a fundraising professional to your team without hiring a new staff member!!

Year-long Development Program – Reservation

This initial cost of $150 reserves your place in the development program, which begins for you sometime in 2018. The total cost is discounted 37.5% from the original cost of $8000 for Year-long Development with SOAR!



The Appeal For Giving Comes First


Fundraisers talk about appeals all the time when raising money. It’s the appeal, or ask for a gift! Is now the right time to ask? It certainly is if you’ve already prepared and educated people about your organization. If not…stay away from the ask! Instead, think about the future and how you raise the appeal or desire in others through your actions.

We’re sitting on top of a gold mine for 2018. SOAR is in Colorado where the Gold Rush happened in the middle 1800’s. Gold mining continues with the Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mine, which is close to where we live. They are the largest employer in the area. If gold mining goes away in this county so do a lot people’s dreams. The same is true with your fundraising. No dollars – no dreams!

Raising the appeal for giving is when the people you ask for money – GIVE IT!

The appeal in our lives is that we always have the opportunity to sit back and let the chips fall where they may. “We’ve done all we can do” is often our excuse. The last five days of 2017 are no exception. People say: We’re done for the year; What we do now is not going to make a difference on the bottom line. Is this really true!? NO!

Actually, now is the most-important time to be diligent. You have five days to impact your future financial success for 2017. But, more importantly, this rolls into what happens for 2018 as well. You know THIS to be true.

Raising the appeal within others to give a gift to you is extremely valuable. Lots of people do their annual giving through campaigns set up nationally now. The list is online. They can donate from the comfort of their home and no one is “asking” again and again for a gift.

This statement is now common, “I now give to two organizations each year and I’ve already given.”

Now, more than ever, relationships matter if you want to be one of two organizations a person is giving to. SOAR develops relationships. We help organizations become THE “connector” in their community. People CHOOSE to donate to the organizations we are involved with because the organizations are making a difference for others and not just asking for money!

SOAR works with a handful of organizations each year and we have a few openings for 2018 available in our Year-long Development Program, which is currently discounted through December 31, 2017. Learn more here!







Timely Investments for Raising Money

Timely Investments:

  • 7 to 12 months before fundraiser
  • 6 to 1 month before fundraiser
  • 1 month to the day of fundraiser

History proves a professional fundraiser raises, on average, 41% more money for an organization, when a successful fundraising system is put into place. It means, if you raised $50,000 last year you’re going to raise $70,500 this year.

The simple formula is – take the dollar amount you raised last year and multiply by .41 and then, add the number you get to your original number. For example: You raised $90,000 last year. $90,000 times .41 is $36,900. Add $90,000 and $36,900 together and you get the magic number of $126,900.

There are systems out there, no doubt, which will encourage you to do things outside your comfort zone. How about sticking to what’s natural?

SOAR’s system has proven to increase dollars raised by 126% within 4 months and 371% within 16 months by highlighting people’s gifts. This means participating organizations must be diligent and open-minded about following a system and sharing the things they’re good at with others.

Timeline prior to a fundraising event:

  • 7 to 12 months before fundraiser – This is when you are spreading the word about your organization because you’re hosting networking events. HOW you do this is important.
  • 6 to 1 month before fundraiser – This is when you change to every other month for networking events, and spend time with a core group of people who are instrumental in achieving your success.
  • 1 month to the day of fundraiser – This is the month when you are looking past the fundraiser and what happens afterwards.

SOAR works with corporations and non-profits to put together Collaborative Networking Events.

SOAR is…here!

Timely investments are HOW you spend your time. The value of follow up…PRICELESS


How Can Network Fundraising Help?

People ask – what is Network Fundraising?

The short answer – It is the system a person can learn and then use to grow their connections, increase market share and raise money. It is proven to increase dollars by 126% in four months.

Network Fundraising is taking networking events and adding advocates who invite people to networking events. Advocates give of their time. You provide an adequate motive for advocates to be involved with you. It’s win/win in the end. SOAR has programs to walk you down this path toward achieving financial success.

YOUR Way to Raising More Money!

We are all inclined to learn from the success of others and that’s good! Although, what we often overlook is the knowledge we have within ourselves and in the end, that’s what makes the most difference.

SEE YOUR WAY is a powerful statement. How often do you sit back and see the ways you can impact your program in a productive way? Yes, there are systems organizations follow to raise money. There are teams focusing on the mechanics and when the program is well-oiled success is achievable by sheer willpower.

Again I ask – what ways can you, alone, impact the program? This is when you look at the skills you possess AND the NATURAL abilities you were born with. Sometimes, skill and natural ability are one in the same. Sometimes, they are not the same at all!

  1. Who are you?
  2. What do people like about you?
  3. Where are you most-comfortable?

There is an exercise you are encouraged to do with an acquaintance. When raising money we approach people we do not know very well. We may think we do but really, we know what they share with us. An acquaintance sees you from the perspective of what you’ve sharing. A true friend is not recommended for this exercise because they are “in the know” if that makes sense. They have TMI – too much information – to be objective.


  • Ask someone you’ve been talking with if they are willing to sit down with you for a brief meeting. This could be done over coffee/tea. 45 minutes is a good time frame.
  • Let the person know you want to see if you’re really portraying who you are with the people you meet. Mention it could be two-way and you are also willing to share your perspective for them. It’s a new twist on marketing “self.”
  • During the meeting, discuss topics around the three questions above. You can ask things like: Do you know what I’m passionate about? Why did we continue to talk after our initial introduction – is there something about my work that interests you? Are there areas about my work where I can be more clear? What do you feel my strengths are? Do you have suggestions on where I can better market myself and the work I do?

Make sure the conversation is two way and if the person wants to also hear your answers to the questions about themselves, you provide that opportunity.

As we think about ways we can be more productive in raising more money by increasing market share there is a very large personal component. SEE YOUR WAY of making things happen because it is integral to being successful.

Motivating your team for fundraising success!

People like succeeding at personal goals, which is why setting up levels for people to reach is enticing…even when they’re volunteering their time with you. There’s an interest, which naturally happens, through curiosity and the desire to be the best. 

In multi-level marketing the image below would be considered a down line. One person invites multiple people to join them in accomplishing a goal.

Social Networks

Through fundraising at SOAR we talk about our downline as ADVOCATES who are members of a team. Once an Advocate comes on board the goal is for them to invite others to become advocates alongside them. This involves inspiring people through LEVELS of accomplishment. An Advocate becomes a Major Advocate, Progressive Advocate, Competent Advocate and at the highest level – a Distinguished Advocate when they accomplish goals.

Adding value for involvement

Begin by making a list of twenty marketing benefits your advocates will receive because they tell people about you. Narrow your list of twenty down to the most important and beneficial. The reason you list twenty to begin with is because a long list allows ideas to develop. It is a creative strategy for thinking outside of the box. You can do this brainstorming process with a group of people. SOAR recommends staff and volunteers working on it together.

Advocate levels include marketing opportunities. The list below is an example of the first two levels:

Advocate (telling people about your organization)

  • Printed nametag for events
  • Invitation to quarterly event
  • Mentioned on social media

Major Advocate (2 advocates in down-line)

  • Printed nametag for events
  • Invitation to quarterly event
  • Mentioned on social media
  • Opportunity to be involved with events as a greeter
  • Ribbon added to nametag (“Major”)

As you expand your program to the higher levels of advocates you continue to increase the amount of benefits a person receives.

Learn more about two new programs with SOAR, which are meant to help you stand out among other organizations in relation to how you give back. This 9-minute video helps to explain!

Your ability to give back in productive ways makes a huge difference in results when it comes to creating awareness about your program.

Networking Events + Advocates = Raising More Money!

What is a networking event?

Two presentations plus a mix n’ mingle, which happen on one day!

Who are advocates?

People who agree to tell people about your business and invite them to your networking events.

How much more money can we raise?

This depends on how organized your presentations are, how well your advocates promote your networking events, and the methods you use to cultivate the relationships. This works for businesses as well as non-profits.

SOAR with Network Fundraising has an Internet self-study course called the SOAR Webinar Series. This teaches the basics for success with using this system. SOAR also has 1:1 coaching opportunities to help you follow the system, which guarantees you’re getting the best opportunity for success. In the past – organizations have increased 126% to 169% within six months of coaching. We are talking about raising more than $50,000 in these instances.
